Thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising event for the Social Bite charity – helping to end homelessness in Scotland. Pupils in Raasay Primary School, with the support of the Parent Council, parents and staff, ran a pop up cafe and slept out in the school on Friday 9th November. Pupils ate a simple meal of pasta and tinned fruit from a box of donations which the Raasay community kindly contributed to.
Tabby P7 said “We are doing Social Bites as part of the ‘Year of Young People’ to end homelessness. We are all giving up our beds tonight. We want to help people who are homeless in Scotland. Because of tonight 830 people that are homeless will be in safe and secure accommodation. It is going to help almost 1000 people. We don’t think it is acceptable to be homeless.”
The total amount raised for the charity so far, including Gift Aid, is £1136.54 – you can still donate online at https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RaasayPrimary until 24th Dec.
